Harvesting garlic

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Matt, Jen and I harvested most of the garlic last night and set it out to dry on some window screens from the garage.

The garden seems to have survived last week's heat pretty well. Thank you to all those who took the time to do some extra watering. There are a couple of problems: the beans in the first covered bed on the right are struggling with some sort of leaf blight.

  If anyone recognizes this or has a good solution, please share!

The pepper plants are also being eaten by something. I looked in the shed to see if we had anything to spray on the plants to discourage whatever insect is eating them, but I only found fertilizer.

I also secured some of the boards I put up last week to keep out the rabbits.
